09:00 – 13:00  Live Surgery Broadcast: Osseointegration and Targeted Muscle Reinnervation in a transhumeral amputee
Room: HS 5 (entrance on level 8)

Additional to the Workshops on Thursday we will be able to demonstrate the novel eOPRA Osseointegration System together with selective nerve transfers and/or RPNI on a transhumeral patient on Wednesday May 9th via a live video feed into one of the auditoriums. Please register separately for this pre-Symposium event, so we can gauge how many people will come.

If you register for the Workshops on Thursday, this surgical demonstration will be a free add-on. We will start at 09:00 a.m. and expect it to end at about 13:00 p.m.
